Patient :Hi there. I am very worried that I have contracted herpes after having unprotected sex 14 days ago. I have no visible symptoms yet but many of the listed other symptoms including tingling in my penis, fatigue, loss of appetite and achy muscles at times. Does that sound like I definitely have herpes? Or potentially something else? Or is there any other reason why I may be experiencing those symptoms?
Can I be tested for herpes after just 14 days and no visible symptoms? I read that tests are not always accurate when no symptoms are visible..?
